¾ cup Dunkin’ Donuts French Vanilla coffee, brewed
¼ cup heavy cream

4 each baked puff pastry shells, cooled and centers removed
1 pint whipped cream
Melt chocolate in stainless steel bowl over a hot water bath. Whisk brewed coffee into pre-melted hot chocolate. When chocolate and coffee mixture is smoothe with no lumps (if lumps occur, heat chocolate mixture in microwave for 10 seconds to bring temperature up again in appropriate vessel) add cold unwhipped heavy cream to chocolate mixture and whisk smooth. Reserve on the side. Wash and dry strawberries, remove stem and dice into 1/4 inch cubes. Place 3 strawberries in each pastry shell.
